O'Reilly's

Had need of a 25" 4 gauge battery cable and looked online. Napa had them but with the crappy spring ends. O'Reilly had them copper with the 'bolt' ends - so off to the store I went. It was folded up in a package about 6" long.

I couldn't hardly bend the old cable in a 90 much less 180. Course its China made.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: O'Reilly's

You can special order cables through a parts store from BWD-I have their catalog.

Re: O'Reilly's

Have you tried building your own? Its super easy if you use the solder pellets.

I've built cables for my suburban and my jeep using this method:

I put copper lugs on the end and use these terminals:

This works especially well if you have a winch or dual batteries.



I also replace the fusible link wire with a resettable breaker (still cleaning up the rest of that wiring):
